KMT Robotic Solutions Introduces Investment Casting Shell and Core Removal System

KMT Robotic Solutions has introduced the new KMT system with a FANUC robot to replace a hard automation water blast booth with an extremely efficient and precise robotic shell removing and cleaning system.

This system allows investment casters to reduce energy and water consumption and produce cleaner parts. KMT is the sole commercial supplier of such systems with production installations making investment cast parts. According to Mark Handelsman, who is KMT’s Advanced Technology Product Manager, the company’s robotic shell removing and cleaning systems were capable of producing steadily and reliably cleaner parts, and at the same time reduce consumption of water and energy by the precise control of the nozzle path, orientation, stand off and water pressure.

Their customers gain an added advantage of eliminating costly waste disposal processes, or other environmental issues, when shot blasting and caustic baths are being replaced by the KMT system. The company’s Jet Tool Software could also reprogram the robots easily for varied part models without decreasing the cleaning efficiency. The system works along with another robotic system given by Acme manufacturing, which breaks off and separates the cast parts from the sprue. There is an overall increase in throughput without additional handling all due to the combination of cut off cells and cleaning.

Bruce Potts, the CEO and President of KMT Robotic Solutions has revealed that the company had put in a quite a lot of resources to ensure the success of their customers and also to develop the market. According to him, the customers have given a lot of positive feedback about the system. Other than orthopedic implants, these systems could also be utilized for cleaning automotive, aerospace and other investing casting markets.
